12:58 pm
time, or to take a look at this architecture that bernard may back was so famous for during the time they were blending the arts with real lives of people and to suggest that this is among us 100 years later and that there is something that links this history over 100 years and that word that time and time again you hear me say about today. innovation did not start 3 years ago with mayor lee. that's another fact i want to kind of dispel. innovation was over 100 years ago and it started with so many people in san francisco suggesting through this fair that they started that we could celebrate going forward our imagination of what was then,
